Lea Jazbec
Multidisciplinary Artist

artist bio

Lea Jazbec (1979, SLO) is a multimedia artist and holds an MFA degree from the Accademia di Belle Arti di Venezia, Italy. Light plays a central part in her artistic practice. In her work, she purposely moves between media to create site-specific light, sound, and video installations. Her interest turned toward light and space between 2008 and 2009, when she was in Venice studying fine art and doing a one-year artist residency at Bevilacqua La Masa Foundation. Movement in the space inspired installations like “Panorama” (2008) and “Artificial Walls of Mystery” (2009), as well as the use of transparency, which led her to explore light. Jazbec often works in series, departing from a single work which organically evolves in a step-by-step process. In recent years, she has been transcribing the drawings she made as part of the series “Time, Eye, Body” between 2010 and 2016. This project represents a base for research and interpretation of both her past works and current methodology. Nature and the human condition are recurrent topics in the artist’s production. Currently, she is focusing on creating installations in public spaces with site-specific and space-conditioned content these new works concern natural, cultural, and industrial heritage and abandoned spaces in need of revitalization.
